"What a daily trip!!" San Fruttuoso by PALLINA

San Fruttuoso Travel Guide: 16 reviews and 51 photos

San Fruttuoso is a perfect half-day or daily trip if you are in Camogli or Portofino or whereelse in the Riviera di Levante (eastern of Genova). Reachable only by ferry or on foot, it is a breathtaking bay with a visitworthing (former) abbey. The abbey dates back 13° century and belonged to Doria family (well known family if you have already visited Rome) but has been donated to FAI more or less in 1990. (FAI= Fondo Ambiente Italiano, for info pls see http://www.fondoambiente.it/).
The small bay if often crowded during the busy season, there are beach facilities (30 euros for a sun umbrella and two sunbeds!) and three (expensive) restaurants.

Pros and Cons
